Sacha Baron Cohen Drops Out of Freddie Mercury Biopic

Word is that Sacha Baron Cohen aka Borat has dropped out of the upcoming biopic of flawless Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Word is that SBC had creative differences with the remaining members of the band. The surviving members have creative say over the final script and they also have director approval. Their vision did not match up with the actor's.
It is said that Cohen wanted to get raunchy and have the film be an R-rated "tell-all," while the band wanted it to be more PG.
We can't think of anyone else better suited to play Freddie Mercury than SBC. Sigh.
Who should replace Sacha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury in this biopic?
